    Tired menu with understaffed crew. The food was flat out terrible. Under seasoned, over cooked and over sauced entrees with poor cuts of meat. Asparagus was woody. Ambiance was okay. My impression was that this establishment feels that they are the only show in town and that they don’t need to provide quality food or a fine dining experience. I’ve had better food and service at chain restaurants.

    Return visit, food excellent and consistent. Small restaurant, nearby table for four was a bit loud. Very limited by the glass wine choices. Great, friendly service. Would highly recommend this bistro as a special occasion restaurant.

    A lovely dinning room. Quiet, comfortable and the tables were well spaced. The salad greens were tender and fresh. The blue cheese dressing was the best I have ever eaten and we have travelled to many countries around the world. We both chose the True Cod with Creamy Risotto. This dish is outstanding. We are still talking about it today. The wait staff was attentive and happy to make suggestions. I highly recommend this restaurant. We look forward to our next visit.

    The food has been excellent over many years. Now the menu is mostly different and somewhat disappointing. The crab risotto was mediocre. French fries excellent. Fish was so-so. No more oyster stew (maybe too hard to get the oysters now?????). Salads were good. Wine selection good. Overall a nice dinner, but the food is no longer excellent.

    We were seated by the kitchen and could easily hear the kitchen staff conversations and see hanging dish towels. The food was underwhelming and we were disappointed with our anniversary experience. The servers were friendly and tried to make the best of the situation.

    Our first visit back here since the Covid shutdown. I believe the restaurant has changed hands. Good cocktails, servers were attentive but rushed, very limited menu - only shrimp & cod, out of steaks, small portions, and quite expensive.

    Taking into consideration Manzanita is a small town with limited options, Neah Kah Nie Bistro is a place I would definitely go to if you want to treat yourself. The food was solid and tasty but nothing creative or special other than the tres leches dessert we ended with. I would have given this place 4 stars had we not come across a large butter wrapper in our potatoes. For a 40 dollar plate of steak and potatoes I definitely don't think that's acceptable. My husband and I were able to get over the large piece of butter wrapper because we understand that things happen, however it really bothered me that our waiter other than saying sorry didn't do anything more to try to make such a huge mistake right. She could have offered to comp our dessert or even my husband's soda, but no - we paid full price. We appreciate the apology but for the amount charged for simple food - I expect better service and more care.

    While I understand that there are labor shortages, in a restaurant of 7 tables, 2 servers should be able to keep up, but that sadly wasn't the case the night we dined here. Our request for a second glass of wine from an already open, screw top bottle never came so we cancelled that order. They were out of 2 dishes which limited the already limited menu. The salads were adequate, though the caesar dressing tasted like it maybe was out of a bottle. On the positive note, our entrees - True Cod on Risotto with a Lemon Buerre Blanc was delicious. For the Oregon coast this place is fine, but it wouldn't make it in a city.

    I have never walked out of a restaurant before being served--until the four of us went to Neah Kah Nie Bistro last night. We were seated at a table that didn't have enough floor clearance for me to fit my knees under. I am 6"2". It was more like a table for first graders. Seriously. Then the waitress informed us that the lone fish item on the menu--the one three of the four of us wanted to order--was not available because, as this was the last night of the week the restaurant was open(Saturday), the kitchen didn't want left overs. And one of the wines we wanted was also not available. Finally, seated directly behind us was a table of six raucous people who were having a VERY good time-- in a restaurant that sells ambiance as a virtue. We had come to Neah Kah Nie to celebrate our best friends from Atlanta joining us in Manzanita. We wanted to impress them. We were so disappointed that in the space of ten minutes our expectations for a special evening turned so sour. I know Neah Kah Nie has a good reputation. We had eaten there before and enjoyed it. But last night was a sad example of a restaurant that no longer had a commitment to giving its customers the experience it promised.

    Terrible service and sub-par food. We felt rushed through the entire 60 minutes or less we had a full course meal. We felt like the waitress didn't like us from out of the gate and treated us like we had just pulled up to a drive thru looking like we hadn't showered for days. She threw our napkins and silverware at us and failed to fill our water glasses or wine, and so forth. The food tasted like something you get at a chain, such as Stanford's but actually not as good. The table was the worst part as our two men in the party could barely sit at this outdoor firepit styled table which was paneled on all four sides so you had to spread your legs wide to just get close enough to eat, plus it was so low you were hunkered over it. On top of everything the meal was outrageously expensive. Will not go back, and I live in Manzanita. My friends had warned me but I wanted to give it a fair try. I wish the people that used to own and run this place would come back. This place is a disaster on multiple levels.

    My wife and I were in Manzanita for our anniversary and decided to try it out. We had an early reservation so the restaurant was pretty empty when we arrived . It took a few minutes to be seated and to order drinks but we weren’t in a rush. After waiting a few minutes to order we realized there was only one server and she was also making the drinks and seating people. Luckily we ordered right away and the food came out promptly and it was amazing! We watched as other customers had to wait awhile for drinks and service but after awhile another server showed up. All in all it was one of the best meals I’ve had in a while so would definitely return.

    Mentioned I had a food allergy for an item and was told by the “older” waitress, “we don’t do subs”… still brought my food out with the item I’m allergic to. Shrimp cocktail tasted terrible and fishy. Kindly mentioned it to the waitress only yo be told “that’s what bay shrimp taste like”. We didn’t eat it but we sure paid for it.

    Very few fine dining options in this casual town so made a reservation during our vacation. Had a long day so called to cancel and was informed I would have to pay a $50 fee to do so. Since I am cheap and failed to read the fine print I told them that I would like to dine with them that evening. I am actually very glad I did. The service was fabulous. The food was delicious. The restaurant itself is very quaint and charming. I recommend it for a parents night out
